    Forthcoming MIPI A-PHY Update Will Double Maximum Data Rate and Expand Implementation Options

    As announced earlier this week, development is now complete on the next version of the MIPI A-PHYSM SerDes interface, which will double the maximum available downlink data rate from 16 Gigabits per second (Gbps) to 32 Gbps to support evolving requirements of automotive displays and sensors (cameras, lidars and radars). The enhanced version, v1.1, also will double the data rate available for uplink control traffic and introduce options for implementing A-PHY’s lower speed gears over lower-cost legacy cables, providing additional flexibility for manufacturers to implement A-PHY.

    Due for release in late 2021, v1.1 will be fully interoperable with A-PHY v1.0, and devices using both releases will be able to coexist on the same network.
